My deepest condolences to the entire Clapp family. George was a someone that put everyone else 1st. From his family to the community, he always had their best interest ahead of his. We had some good laughs over the years and this I will always remember. Take care Friend. Between you and Dino, Heaven has it's hands full!

George you will be missed. I greatly appreciated all the things you did helping me with my girls travel basketball team. But most of all, through that process we became friends and discovered we had a lot in common in our teenage years through Delco sports. I will miss that great laugh of yours. See you on the other side. My Brother.

George was a really great guy. Deepest sympathies to all his many loved ones. I will miss him dearly. Such a good long time family friend. My prayers are with his family. May his sweet soul rest in peace in Heaven with our Lord. He always had a big smile and a big hug for me when I saw him. He was so much fun on the dance floor at the family parties, I remember that man could dance. He had a big heart and comforting words of encouragement whenever I was down and saw him. As we mourn the loss of George, may we also celebrate his life with fond memories of him never to be forgotten. God bless George's precious soul and God bless his beautiful family and friends. We will all miss him.
